How we join forces

using the Roadmap towards 2050 as our guide

To achieve the Leuven of the future, we need a plan. We drew up a plan with the help of Leuven-based experts: the Roadmap towards a climate neutral Leuven. We are now accelerating the realisation of this plan through breakthrough projects and inciting organisations, companies, governments and inhabitants to action. Those commitments will be compiled into the first Leuven Climate City Contract.

View the Roadmap towards 2050

In close co-operation with Leuven-based partners we are constantly looking for new solutions. Solutions that make the plan towards a climate neutral Leuven smarter and smarter. Solutions that allow us to take big steps towards our goal.
